Barranco de Guayadeque, Gran Canaria
(4.5/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Barranco de Guayadeque is a cliff top filled with indigenous plants and natural caves originally settled by pioneers on the island. Visit the museum for a look at many of the artifacts they left behind. You can drive or catch a tour bus to see the caves themselves, many of which are still inhabited today, though they are now wired for electricity. Some of the residents may even invite you inside. A restaurant on the cliff offers traditional Canarian fare such as fried pork, traditionally prepared boiled potatoes, and local wine.

  • We were on the road with the car on the island. The very beautiful gorge, Barranco de Guayadeque where there resides a Guanche settlement, more reminiscent of American Canyon. A visitor attraction with many hiking trails in the region. We recommend the rewarding excursion destination in combination me very much more an island tour.

  • The view from the place is great, however with respect to the caves - there are really not much to see here..
  • Breathtaking, it's got to be one of the most spectacular valleys in Europe.
  • Have found it as a top 10 hint for GC. Hoping the other nine are better. Probably the green valley is teasing some people.
  • Very good site for descansar.silencio, comfort; very clean! that left me amazed! Very good food! Wonderful as the family care. I would like to congratulate the great team of people who work there. To all many thanks for your care and dedication. It is to repeat until soon greetings...

  • You should certainly visit it. Wonderful views, curious restaurants made within Casas Cuevas. There are trails to walk.
